Meet CEI`s inaugural cohort! Working in all areas of artistic practice and scholarship, from theater, music, and dance to film, digital arts, new media and games, the undergraduate and graduate students in the Arts Division are as diverse as the courses we offer. Adding to the Arts Division’s distinction is our commitment to underserved populations and our belief that all students, regardless of their degree level, should be afforded rich opportunities to engage in interdisciplinary and extra-disciplinary work that goes beyond traditional arts training.
These internships will create a much-needed diversity pipeline to augment the creative work force throughout California. Our first set of internship partners include: Lionsgate, Sony Pictures, the games company Funomena, San Jose Museum of Art, Chronicle Books, Nirveda Cognition, ITVS, Museo Eduardo Carrillo, Indexical, KQED, and Santa Cruz’s own Museum of Art and History (MAH).
These off-campus opportunities, along with on-campus mentorships, serve a twofold purpose: they expose students to a wide-array of potential careers and provide them with the crucial support needed to incubate their own creative visions.
